Baby Armie [fka Luminfire] - Big Tyme Nutt Gittaz: The Movement

Click for hi-res

Change is in the air here at AiMT. For starters, I'm hereby changing my DJ alias from the fossilized "Luminfire" to the oh-so-spry "Baby Armie." Don't ask why. It's just the movement.

My last two sets were of the new/old Italo and new wave varieties, but this one has an altogether different vibe. It's more upbeat and a lot closer to what you'd hear me spin live:

Luminfire - Sequin Ambrosia, Vol. 3

FAIL
Click for Hi-Res

(EPIC "COVER ART" FAIL. I was in a hurry. We'll go harder next time.)

Here's one for the vaults. I actually finished this set at the tail end of '08. My original plans were for it to be a three-hour disco history lesson of sorts, but it never came into full fruition. Turns out this hour-long rough draft works pretty well on its own, so I figured I'd throw it up to help pump the Cool Shoes party this Friday in Little Rock. I'll be spinning along with Casey S. and Wolf-E-Wolf. Click to RSVP or scroll down past the jump for more details.

This will be my first time at Cool Shoes—apparently these parties are really taking over Central Arkansas, and some of them have had over 1,000 450 attendees. (UPDATE: Just got a heads up from Cool Shoes crony Risky Biz, who put me up on the correct head count. Still pretty impressive, no?) A head count like that has been more or less unheard of for something like this in the state. I'm looking forward to seeing how hard the Rock goes. Anyway, check out this set, and if you happened to be in Central Arkansas on Friday, hopefully I'll see you at Cool Shoes.

Scarpino's Tomorrow Night: Lucky 13

DRINK SPECIALS UPDATE: $3 wells, $4 wine specials.

Attention local Fayettenam peeps, you're hereby cordially invited to the Beat Bachs Friday the 13th party: Lucky 13 (click to RSVP on Facebook). Sets by Beat Bachs himself, Tanner Beam and yours truly.

Lucky 13 — Click to RSVP on Facebook!

On a side note, the first time I went to a Scarpino's show/party was only a few weeks ago. Since then I've been back a few times. It's seriously a classy joint, like one of the classier joints in the region. I'm sad that I slept on it for so long. If you haven't been, you should come out.

Farewell, Clone Records

Clone Records

It's kind of breaking my heart that legendary Dutch label Clone will no longer be releasing new music. I've always regarded Clone as a top five dance imprint. It started out peddling primarily acid house and techno, but its theme and variety has evolved over the years.

In the mid-to-late '00s, Clone focused primarily on Moroder-influenced throwback disco, which would ultimately help pave the way for folks like Hercules and Love Affair, Kelley Polar and Italians Do It Better.

I threw together this short mix, which culls tracks mostly from Clone's abovementioned '00s period, to pay my respects.

00:00: Putsch '79 - "Training Montage" [2004]
04:23: Pauli vs. Tyrell - "Little (S.Y.D. Remix)" [2007]
09:23: Alden Tyrell - "Knockers" [2003]
13:51: Glass Domain - "Fairy" [1991]
15:46: Alden Tyrell [ft. Nancy Fortune] - "La Voix (Elitechnique
Remix)" [2006]
22:06: Putsch '79 - "Picotto Jade" [2003]
27:43: Dexter - "Echt Vet" [2005]

Download Farewell, Clone [Direct]

Luckily, Clone's reissues sublabel, Clone Classic Cuts, will remain active.

A+B Reposts

A+B is a Luminfire mash-up anthology. Read the original post for a full description. Please report broken or misplaced links here.

I've been getting lots of emails from people trying to download this or that A+B mash-up. The links have been breaking one by one. I finally decided to find new hosting for each one. I'm hoping this will be a permanent solution. Rather than just linking back to each volume, I figured I'd make one annoyingly giant post and link to every mash-up. If you want all six volumes, you can find zip links at the bottom of this post.

They're all faux direct links via MediaFire, so you won't be able to right click and "Save As." Just left click, wait a bit and a download window will pop up. The links should work with most download managers out there.

For the record, these six volumes are the main volumes. The last two, which have yet to be posted, will be the leftovers—stuff from years back that is more hip-hop-oriented and less dance-oriented.

A+B: The Ants in My Trance Mash-Ups Compendium, Vol. 6



It's been a little over a month since I put up Vol. 5, which completely scraps my initial ONE-VOLUME-A-WEEK-OR-FAIL plan. Some hosting issues got me behind. In any case, we're nearing the bottom of the barrel. Vol. 7 will be an 80-minute, 23-track blendtape otherwise known as Luminfire Gets His Mash on Like It's '03, which I put out on CD-R in '06. I think it sounds terribly dated at this point, but I'd rather get it out into the world than let it fossilize on my hard drive.

A+B is a Luminfire mash-up anthology. Read the original post for a full description. Please report broken or misplaced links here.
